Retro? And how… Loungy!? But hello!
Retro Lounge completes the kymo collection with a flokati that couldn't be more of a classic. Like the original design from the 70s, this flokati is lovingly handmade in Greece using traditional methods. The natural white, undyed wool is first spun and then woven by hand into a sumptuous Floorwear®. The fact that only the finest New Zealand wool is used in this process speaks for itself. And because its natural character is so unique, Retro Lounge is also only available in undyed white wool, in all its shades. The extra-long pile is given a very special treatment at the end: the finished Floorwear® is washed in a basin under a flow of stream. The stream twists the pile fibres even further, making them even more robust and giving them their unmistakable look.
The name Retro Lounge also has a much deeper meaning for us at kymo, however: the Retro Lounge Crew was the DJ group from which the first kymo line-up was formed. Back then, in the mid-90s, they put on the first big parties with international DJ attendees in their hometown of Karlsruhe. So, this Floorwear® gives us more of a private retro feel...
